Formerly of Studio/Louise Campbell, Scandinavian designer Thomas Bentzen established his own studio in 2010. Bentzen is a co-founder of the design collective Remove and has exhibited his products all over the world. Reflecting the designer’s origin in its quiet yet captivating form and subdued materials, the fully handmade Elevated Vase (2013) strives to capture the earthly and ethereal all at once. “The wood represents the roots in the soil and the glass the airy treetop, as it stands in nature,” says Bentzen of his vase. Elegant yet carefully understated, it manages to both anchor and lift arrangements without dominating the stage. “The wooden bowl holding the glass vase elevates the flowers, almost ritually,” he says, “and frames them in a new Nordic poetic way.” Glass portion removes for easy hand cleaning; not dishwasher safe. Made in China.
Mouth-blown polished glass; solid ash with polyurethane lacquer finish.
